A new position

The Organist extraordinaire(literally as it goes as this is a Missa Cantata of which I speak,) decided to retire on Sat, after 65 years service.

That's worth repeating - 65 years.

She played at one of the Altar Server's Grandparent's Wedding (and he's a student so do the Math!), she played through my early childhood and First Holy Communion and now no more.

Her melancholic postludes of thirty years ago were still being heard until Saturday lunch-time. Amazing.

The replacement?

Congratulations! Great news! Or "Swell!" as I think the Yanks say. Trust you will pull out all the stops and may your Bach never be worse than...(That's enough!)

It must be daunting to have to follow someone so long established, but am sure you're more than capable. Congratulations!
